Hello Sweeties! Long time, no blog...
We have been busy beavers here in our house. The elves are trying to get a jump on the holidays...
Before I get to that, let me show you what we did the other day at the park. "Pumpkin Math" with Friends!
We met up with some dear friends to estimate the size of our pumpkins as well as the amount of seeds inside. The kids did a great job! What a mess, but it sure was fun!
Look at those orange fingers!
Joshua and Katie are so cute together. Puppy love at it's finest.:)
The weather was perfect- breezy and warm...
Now on to a fun project! I saw this on Blonde Designs... Bath Salts! An inexpensive and oh so fun gift to make with your children!
You will need some wonderful scents. We purchased essential oils ($8-$20) at the health food store (quite expensive and VERY strong) as that is what the recipe calls for, but ended up using fragrances purchased at Hobby Lobby (soap/candle aisle). They are much more reasonable in price and the scents were lovely!
We found some cute containers for wrapping the finished product...
Then you need to purchase Epsom Salts and Baking Soda. Two cups of Epsom salts and 4 tablespoons of baking soda (softens skin and adds bubbles!) are mixed together and then fragrance is added. The girls tried it out and loved it!
We found these glass containers at Hobby Lobby, too. $1.47 each. Blonde Designs has darling labels you can print out, too! Buy some sticker paper (scrapbook section of Hobby Lobby) and print your own!
Mandy's play was last week. She played a vendor and did a wonderful job. Our co-op classes are now over for the semester so I can rest for a bit.:)
That's all for now! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
